Absolutely amazing piece. I love the body language of the dragon, the idea that you can not simply dismiss the scene as one of combat between the two main characters. The spell effect surrounding the elf and the way it interacts with its surroundings, well done. The subtle play of light it throws, excellent.
Yes, I realized that it is the actual tendency, artists like Brad Rigney for instance prove it so. I still am very much in the beginning of my journey when it comes to fantasy artwork. Thank you for taking the time to give me your insight, Todd! We still might work together, some years from now.
beckikinsella, thank you! This commission was made during several 2 hour sessions, during several separate days, maybe about 15 hours, but that is a very rough estimate. I tend to alternate between pieces until they're complete.
